About Jane


Jane was born with an artist’s spirit and talent that was nurtured by her father, a watercolor artist and horticulturist. After completing her Bachelor’s Degree in Landscape Architecture, she pursued a professional career and became a leading landscape architect in Sonoma County in Northern California. Moving to Truckee in 2006 ignited her passion to paint and explore the local landscape.

Artistic Process

Often found hiking, running, biking or skiing, Jane is forever on the lookout for views, trees and vistas that inspire her paintings. She collects these images and creates dramatic landscapes, going beyond realism into contemporary impressionism with a thick application of oil paint, expressive brush strokes and vibrant color.


Jane finds daily inspiration in the dynamic landscapes of her home in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and her travels in the West. Her goal is to bring happiness to the world by making paintings filled with uplifting color, texture and movement.
